COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the beer that they serve only at Oktoberfest. It is NOT sold in North America. It is a much lighter beer than the common Oktoberfest-Marzen.

Not much to chew on here. Nose of hay, sweets and weak hops. Mediumweak feel and good carb. Taste is bread, weak lemon, sweat.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 On tap at Oktoberfest 2010; good solid easy drinking beer. I have had this both times I have been to Oktoberfest now and really enjoy it (My favorite beer there). UPDATED - Oktoberfest 2011 on tap. As good as I remember though I would say not the best beer at the fair. I do also prefer the marzen over this

On tap at the Castle on King. Looks unremarkable, a light yellow beer. Clean tasting lager, but nothing special.

DerWeg (1503) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2009
Draught at Rhino, Toronto. Someone really needs to change the Commercial Description, as this beer is available in several locations in Toronto and area, often alongside the Marzen, as it was at Rhino. Pale gold color, fine carbonation, light white head. sweet yeasty and lightly grassy aroma is replayed in flavor - very agreeable sweetness in taste, honey, yeast, apple pear and lemon. Hallertauer? hops are grassy and herbal, spring freshness. Round and a little biscuity, I thought it nice.

Draught at Rhino, Toronto. Someone really needs to change the Commercial Description, as this beer is available in several locations in Toronto and area, often alongside the Marzen, as it was at Rhino. Bright yellow-aroma, good sized white head. Well balanced aroma of fresh bread hints of honey and barley, and some herbal hop character. Very active carbonation, quite refreshing. Fresh and well-balanced flavour, with the herbal/grassy hops complimenting the sweet and slghtly grainy malt. Pretty nice stuff, flavourful and easy to drink.

Spab (2466) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Draught at the Beerbistro. Pours a light yellow colour with a slight white head. Nose of yeast and sweet malt. Flavour is malt, grains and yeast. Lightish body. Ok, but definitely nothing special.

The aroma has a stale, earthy smell of cereal grains, malts. The appearance is the reddish/orange of an Oktoberfest. The flavor is again mostly the malted barley, very cereal-like and not very pleasant. The finish is entirely unremarkable, mostly malts. This is one of the weaker Oktoberfest/marzens.

On draft at Mr. Dunderbaks. Cereal, cereal, cereal. Very complex in the chex arena with nice yeasty and cereal flavors throught. Nice malty balance, but low on hops. Tasty! Pours golden brown.
